Swansea go into this weekend's game just a point off a Champions League placing after a tough programme of fixtures in November. They have had games against Everton, Arsenal and Manchester City and picked up four points in these fixtures.
The Liberty Stadium has always seen impressive form from the home side since the Swans were promoted to the Premier League and this season has been no different with four wins and a draw in their six home games so far this season.
After taking the lead last Saturday against Manchester City they eventually fell to a 2-1 defeat, this ended a three game unbeaten run for Gary Monk's side.
Swansea City have won four and lost none of the last six meetings with Crystal Palace.
A Glenn Murray penalty gave Palace a share of the points last season in this fixture and Monk is expecting a tough game from their opponents making the journey down the M4. “Crystal Palace will come here full of confidence and with a game plan to try and stop us playing, hopefully we'll be able to overcome that and show our quality.
“We had a tough game against them here last season, and I’m sure they’ll give us a tough game on Saturday. We're expecting them to be very physical, so we will have to stand up to that and impose ourselves on them."
Swansea City: Swansea have no new injury worries but will still be missing some long term casualties that will once again miss out.
Crystal Palace: Two defenders are out for Palace as Damien Delaney has a calf injury sustained in the victory against Liverpool and Adrian Mariappa is unavailable due to a knee injury.

LAST MEETING AT THE LIBERTY STADIUM
2nd March 2014
Swansea City 1-1 Crystal Palace
Barclays Premier League
A late Glenn Murray penalty ensured Palace's long journey to south Wales was worth it as they secured another valuable Premier League point at the Liberty Stadium.
In a real game of two-halves, Jonathan de Guzman had given Swansea the lead halfway through the first-half and the hosts looked in cruise control until the break, but the introduction of Murray helped turn the tide and he netted his first top-flight goal after being brought down by Chico Flores who was red-carded with eight minutes remaining.
